I don't think it should matter what order you connect and switch on. It's most definitely good practice to provide a "soft" disconnect, either by unplugging the car first or telling the charge point to cease charging (not switching it off at the mains to end charging, except of course for an emergency).

That's because switching off the full charge current with a mechanical switch is bad for the switch. Everything you have read was correct.

For starting charging, that does not apply: all forms of charging use a soft start. There must be some timing-dependent differences sepending on the sequence, although normally any sequence should work, so long as it ends with all connections made so that mains power's available to the car's on-board charger.
